Willett 3 Year Cask Strength Straight Rye Whiskey 50 ml
A blend of a barely legal 51% rye mash bill and a 74% rye mash bill, the Three Year Estate Bottled Straight Rye Whiskey from Willett is the product of the distillery on the actual estate.
This is a 50 mL single shot bottle.
Willett's parent company, Kentucky Bourbon Distillers, has been sourcing and bottling whiskies since the mid-1980s, bottling them under a series of well-respected labels (Rowan's Creek, Noah's Mill, among others). The company decided to resume production of it's own distillate in the early-2010s, and this is the second, slightly older batch of Willett's rye whiskey.
Nose: Lemongrass, caramelised apple and a hint of savoury thyme.
Palate: Herbaceous elements continue on to the palate, now joined by mint and cinnamon.
Finish: A crackle of black pepper, tempered by brown sugar and beeswax.
